Zachary Frankel & Mikaela Stafford

Tessellate Past Event

Presented by Zachary Frankel and Mikaela Stafford

Merging physical and virtual spaces Zachary Frankel and Mikaela Stafford’s works ask us what the future holds. Applying new and emerging technologies and integrating industrial processes and materiality with 3D motion graphics software they attempt to challenge conventional ideas of consumption by utilising waste to create products of high value and merging the liminal space between physical and virtual environments to create a hyper reality.The exhibition will be held in an unconventional domestic space on Johnston street and will be showcasing a series of Zac’s innovative and sculptural pieces alongside a surreal and animated interpretation of line and form by Mikaela.


Zachary Frankel

Zachary Frankel is a designer and artist exploring furniture, sculpture, objects, lighting and cabinet hardware. Based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birrarung-ga) and working collaboratively across disciplines and materials, he trained as a jeweller but has spent most of his career working as a furniture designer and maker. Design begins with an open exploration of form and material for Frankel. Through a process of experimentation, his aim is to develop new ideas without a commercial imperative, letting his intuition and curiosity guide him. His work, often carrying strong geometric volumes and referencing historical styles, is undeniably contemporary.

Mikaela Stafford

Mikaela Stafford is an interdisciplinary Melbourne-based artist specialising in large-scale light based installations and sculpture. Commonly found in public spaces around the city, Stafford’s work is characteristically immersive and vibrant; however, her latest endeavours has been harnessing dynamic 3D printing and modelling elements with the goal of integrating these experimental processes into her existing installation and sculptural practice, specifically by fusing this technology with sustainable bio-fabrication methods. By merging both digital and physical realms Stafford’s practice seeks to create shimmering environments for audiences to delve into.
